Freedom Is Blogging in Your Underwear

by Hugh MacLeod

Penguin Group US | April 26, 2012 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

Freedom Is Blogging in Your Underwear is rated 1 out of 5 by 1.
This is a book about freedom. Specifically the personal freedom I discovered from the wonderful world of blogging, the freedom I hope everybody will eventually discover for themselves. The freedom that, I believe, will permanently and irrevocably change the world for the better.
 
Having a blog, a voice, having my own media, utterly changed my life. Suddenly my career as a cartoonist wasn’t dependent on other people: “The Gatekeepers”—publishers, editors, Hollywood executives, etc., etc. Sud­denly I had direct contact with my audience. They had direct contact with me. I could just do my thing, without having to wait for some­body else to give me the “green light.” I didn’t have to wait around for somebody else to deem me “worthy.”
 
This was the freedom I spent most of my adult life searching for, the same freedom I believe we’re ALL searching for, in one way or another. Careerwise, blogging gave me everything. Even in the early days, the ben­efits of blogging were so glaringly obvious to me, I couldn’t understand why more people weren’t doing it. Ten years later, I still can’t. So I decided to write a book about it; maybe I can help other people find this freedom, too.

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dreadful Awhile back I was in the library glancing over their section where they put they're new or up and coming novels when I saw this one. Since I'm a blogger I just thought this book would offer me a few chuckles. Unfortunately this book was not amusing, entertaining or witty as I had hoped it would be. In fact I actually had to force myself to continue reading this itty bitty 128 page book. Throughout the whole book I was waiting for the author to be witty but instead I was met with a mish mash of comics and nonsensical ramblings about the authors life here and there. Plus I was still waiting to see how this book related to blogging at all really. Not once did I ever get a true sense that the author was a blogger until he mentioned it in the text. If he hadn't I would never have known. As for the little comic sketches that he included I thought they were poor drawn but maybe that's his style I don't know but I did not see the point of any of them and thought they added nothing to the book. Overall, I don't really think the book had any purpose really. I mean it was just a bunch of rambling so I never really got the point of it and that in itself was my biggest irritant. I would not recommend this one to anyone but if you do want to read it, borrow it from your library first.
